‘The Arousal’ by Charlie Harry Francis (Pic: http://lickmeimdelicious.com)
Reading about the Viagra-laced ice cream, specially created for a client by U.K.-based food inventor Charlie Harry Francis, my first thought was predictably crass. It was not the cone that ice-cream eater was holding.
Estimated to cost $33 a scoop, the champagne-flavored, blue colored ice cream has obviously aroused a lot of interest. Francis, who runs an ice cream company called “Lick Me I’m Delicious'”, does not mass-produce this variety and I am not sure if he intends doing it on a regular basis for other clients. However, reports are that the unnamed client who ordered the ice cream and also provided Viagra was “very happy” with the result. It is not known with whom the client shared his happiness. It is also not known whether the ice cream was ordered individually or as part of an exclusive party. If it was the latter, then the scene of many erect men walking about would have been rather hilarious.
Each scoop contained a 25 mg dose of Viagra, which is the normally prescribed amount. Francis wrote on his blog, “This was one of the weirder requests we've had; to make Viagra ice cream for a party. It was for one of our A-list Celebrity clients and they've made us sign a confidentiality agreement, so we can't say much about it, but I am allowed to say that they were 'very happy with the end result.”
Viagra ice cream could become a party trend. The one good thing about such parties would be that each guest would know the motive of the other guests. In any case, pretty soon the motive would be too hard to hide. (It’s funny how puns just write themselves when it comes to the theme of sex). It is a small mercy that the ice cream was not hard. Could it be that Viagra ice cream may not have to be frozen to keep it hard?
I can see this catching on in India with its astonishingly diverse variety of desserts. One suggestion—don’t put it in the Jalebi syrup because it might not stay coiled up.
I think I should send the sophomore in me back inside.
